ASSISTANT US ATTORNEY FROM MILWAUKEE INTRODUCES HERSELF IN LOCAL PAPER …

By FITSNEWS || Last month we ran an item about the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) discussing the extensive anti-corruption work his agency is doing at the state level.

“There are lots of state capitals in this country where we’re doing lots of public corruption work,” FBI director James Comey said during a speech in Albany, New York.

Naturally, South Carolina is home to one of those state capitals – a story this website broke open a month ago (which since started receiving attention from the state’s legacy media).

Anyway … we couldn’t help but notice a recent edition of The (Columbia, S.C.) Free Times included a reader testimonial from a woman named Lennie Lehman.

“I came here from Milwaukee two months ago to take a temporary job that’s going to last a year or maybe two,” Lehman wrote.  “Tried to involve myself right away in what’s going on.  I picked up a copy of Free Times and I’ve been reading it religiously ever since.”

Nice, huh?  We commend Lehman on her selection: The Free Times is a good paper.  But what’s interesting isn’t Lehman’s letter – it’s her job: Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) for Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Nothing like announcing one’s presence with authority, huh?

Obviously we have no idea whether Lehman is in town “temporarily” to assist with the joint federal-state probe of the S.C. General Assembly … but here’s hoping that’s the case.
